Does anybody have any of the original Pancho Villa documentaries, including

Life of Villa (1912)
With General Pancho Villa in Mexico (1913)
The Life of General Villa (1914)
Following the Flag in Mexico (1916)

By some accounts, these were lost forever, but people here have surprised me before.

Your post was interesting - From what I've read though, this is the Holy Grail of cinema. If anyone has this it would be the find of the century...it is all considered to be permanently lost

Still no harm in posting - someone's attic perhaps? Stranger things have happened...

Gee, I heard they were playing on a double bill with London After Midnight someplace just last week.

After doing some looking around I found there was a documentary made about a man searching for the lost reels. Not sure but it seems he may have found something. I'm looking for this movie on DVD but haven't found anything yet.

Forgive my ignorance in advance please...but what format would these be on?(reel to reel possibly?) and what would they be worth? What name on the reel would indicate originality or authenticity??
